freespace2dotcom Posted January 8, 2018 Report Share Posted January 8, 2018 The title pretty much speaks for itself, but I figured I might as well ask, though I suspect I know the answer. Is there anything in DLC 17 that would prevent it from being run in the Pre-Steam Version of Y1? It's my understanding that the reason why the older version didn't receive DLC 17 was a pragmatic decision to herd all of us into the new version, so that you wouldn't need to support the old version, which had issues with distribution, and is "technically" inferior. Also, given that I have no interest in modding outside of making a DLC 17 patch for the old version of Y1, I am not too familiar with the way Y2 will interpret a save from such a modded "old-version DLC17". Assuming I don't do anything other than publish the mod, would Y2 need a copy of this "mod" (That isn't really a "mod" mod.) like other mods or would it be incapable of distinguishing between a pre-Steam DLC 17 and the official Steam version DLC 17? I think it's an important enough question to ask. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
